About Us

Our Story

Mujeres de la Tierra is a grassroots environmental equity non-profit founded in 2004, in the city of Los Angeles. Mujeres de la Tierra has the distinction of being the first Latina-founded and led 501(c)(3) environmental organization that focuses on the healing of La Madre Tierra (Mother Earth) in Southern California. Mujeres de la Tierra takes pride in having a local, state, and national impact through our values and culturally relevant programs that have earned us recognition from the Anacostia Museum, the City of Los Angeles, and other surrounding communities.

Mission  Statement

Mujeres inspires the healing of La Madre Tierra by working to build grassroots community leadership and capacity among historically unrecognized communities, especially among those that are low-income, immigrant, and/or communities of color. 

We firmly believe in the power of one and that community action and social change start with an individual's commitment to move, inspire, mobilize, and lead. Our engagement efforts provide tools of empowerment by using facts, data, and science with culturally relevant tools and platforms. We are connected to the community through local residents' input, platicas, listening sessions, and other means of interactive conversations and communication.
